Where the $@#% are the log files!
Have you ever been troubleshooting a software issue and simply cannot find where the log files are located? Or better yet, you come to find out the software’s log files are stored in 5 to 10 different and very random folders!?!?
While your first thought might be, “Is this software company playing a sick joke on me?”, the unfortunate reality is that log files much of the time are an afterthought when designing a piece of software.
With JetApps, you no longer have to deal with this nonsense.
All logs for JetBackup will be listed in one place → /usr/local/jetapps/var/log
The entire JetApps “ecosystem” is kept in its own set of dedicated folders:
Here is a list of important folder locations:
JetBackup Configuration: /usr/local/jetapps/etc/jetbackup
User Keys: /usr/local/jetapps/etc/jetbackup/userkeys
(local encryption keys for encrypted backups through GDPR mode)
Private Keys: /usr/local/jetapps/etc/jetbackup/privatekeys
(private ssh keys of destinations configured inside JetBackup)
When a software’s filesystem is well thought out and organized, it makes troubleshooting a breeze!
